Love is Always in the Air

                                                                                                                                          February 1, 2018

In January, we found ourselves reflecting on 2017, encouraged to be in the present moment, and create new vision for 2018.  With Family Day and Valentines Day approaching, our focus is also on connection and love -- and not just romantic love but family love, and, most importantly, self love.

Time spent in nature can strengthen one's well being and feeling loved. Although created with the best intentions, these special occasions can be challenging as the messaging is that we are less worthy if we aren't in a relationship or have family to celebrate with. Not. True! 

Expand your definitions, challenge your perceptions, and get ready to feel great!


February 12th marks Family Day! Pack up the people you love most and celebrate BC’s Family Day at Harrison Hot Spring’s Family Fun Day on February 10th in Memorial Hall!

Enjoy Science World demonstrations at 10:30, 12:00, 1:30 and 3:00, a variety of games and crafts including an indoor bouncy castle and button-making!, face painting, and a Sasquatch Selfie Scavenger Hunt.




Run away with your special someone for a night or two. Who needs Cupid with his bow and arrow, to feel good, when we have something even better? Hot Springs!

BC hot springs have a naturally high mineral content that are said to exert therapeutic effects, relieving and restoring one's health, and soothing the body and mind. It's called hydrotherapy.

  • Did you know that our Hot Springs:

  • were revered as a 'healing place', by the local Sts'ailes First Nations, who travelled by canoe to benefit from the waters?

  • are concentrated with potash and sulphur, which are 40 degrees, and 62 degrees Celsius, respectively?

  • average 1,300 ppm of dissolved mineral solids, one of the highest concentrations of any mineral spring? 

  • The Hot Springs Public Pool is located at the junction of Hot Springs Road and the Esplanade, accessible by everyone! 

Treat the family, your love, and, most importantly, yourself.

Then... wrap your hands around a hot cup of coffee and take a leisurely stroll through a mystic forest. Bathe in its stillness and reconnect.



"Love is the bridge between you and everything." - Rumi



Harrison Hot Springs is far enough away to feel away from it all, but only a 40-minute drive from Abbotsford and a scenic 1.5-hour drive from Vancouver.  Love the journey just as much as the visit when you travel #justuptheroad .
